Internet is not just a luxury, but already a necessity nowadays. The most important function of the internet is to share knowledge around the world – either free or not – which can be propagated through the use of messages, links, or e-mails. The process of transferring this information can be very monotonous, and so FTP came into the picture. It means File Transfer Protocol which is basically the process of transferring data over the internet.
The difference between FTP and HTTP is this: in HTTP one requires a web browser whereas FTP needs a server. Generally, businesses use FTP to permit their clients to upload web pages to their servers.
